OLF Press Release

Regarding the recent incident occurred within OLF party, the legal and audit committee of the party is conducting an
investigation into the matter according to the principles and regulation of the party. While conducting the investigation, the
committee has ordered all the members including the OLF leaders and any party organ to refrain from commenting on the
matter or giving any media press and/or releasing any statements. However, contrary to the order of the legal and audit
committee, we have been continuously witnessing press releases on media in violation of the committee’s order.

Ang these are the media press released by a group stating that the chairman of the OLF has been suspended from his chairmanship
position. Again, this is not only violating the OLF rules and regulations, it is also totally a unverified propaganda dispatched on
media to confuse our members, supporters and the Oromo people as a whole.

Therefore, we are now obligated to notify our members, supports, the Oromo and the Ethiopian people as a whole as well as the
international communities not to buy this unverified propaganda going around on social and some mainstream media outlets.
We also would like to advise the media to uphold the ethics of journalism and act professionally by cross-checking or
preforming your own investigation before propagating such unverified propaganda that confuses the public.
